Good Dog! Leash Caddies are here! and a freebie!

I am so excited to share these with you! As anyone who knows me can tell you, I am all about the pets. In fact we currently have 11 of them! In that 11 are three dogs that really love to go out with us to parks and on hikes. But of course taking them places and being a responsible pet owner means being ready to clean up after them when " nature calls".
Until now that meant stuffing some plastic bags in my back pocket or worse tucking the bags into the waistband of my skirt when without pockets! There had to be a better way! I looked at the pet stores and indeed there were some cleaver gizmoes but all of them had special bags ( read = expensive) to use with them and to buy. I wanted something easy and if I could be a bit more eco-friendly I wanted that too.

To that end I have come up with the Good Dog! Leash Caddy that uses recycled fabric to make a caddy that is just perfect for holding inexpensive grocery store plastic bags for cleaning up after your pet. Each caddy sews completely in the 5x7 hoop and can be set for no color changes so they are fast to sew making them perfect for holiday gifts or even better for bazaar and weekend markets. I have made quite a few from the legs of recycled jeans and they sew up like a dream.

Full instructions in a pdf booklet are included with each collection showing you step by step how to create the project and insert the grommet and swivle clip. Come on over to FRESH THREAD to see the full collection and get in on the pre-retail release price of $15 ( click here), Oh!.. and the collection comes with a full release to make and sell as many of the caddies as you desire, locally or on the web.

To celebrate I am posting up a new freebie.. Use the Good Dog silhouette ( as shown on the caddy up on the top photo) to embellish anything for the pet lover in your life. Click here to download the file is PES ver. 8
Now... go take your dog for walk!
